    I'm not sure about the London ones, but Manchester say their standard offer is AAB, and I've talked to their admissions people who told me that so long as you do well in geography, you're in with a good chance. Good luck!!

    KCL open day said that if you have AAB predictions, you're given an offer, and theyre pretty lenient if you miss it, its just UCL im worried about

    (I don't want to be too specific bc don't want to be recognized) but I'm a girl from Europe (outside UK), still in high school/secondary school. My finals are in the spring so I do not have any officially predicted grades etc (though if all goes as planned I should recive something similar to UK's AAA/A*A*A*).

    Courses applied for:
    • LSE
    • Durham (BA)
    • UCL (BA, year abroad)
    • Still battleing between St Andrews, Manchester and Bristol

    I would have wanted to apply to Oxford but decided too late that I want to study geography, so maybe next year then! (if I don't get into LSE or Durham, I'll keep a gap year and apply (and do my finals) agai). Tbh, still haven't started my personal statement... but I'm aiming to be done with the application process before Christmas.

    I'm glad to see you have applied to Reading! I am currently in my final year doing human and physical geography and really enjoying, so if you have any questions feel free to ask! Hopefully you'll hear back soon.
